Zencoder at Google I/O

The Brightcove team is excited to show off the Zencoder cloud transcoding service at Google's annual developer conference, Google I/O.  We'll be in the Developer Sandbox, demoing Live and File transcoding proofs-of-concept running on Google Compute Engine (GCE), which is Google's response to EC2. We wrote some preliminary thoughts about GCE a year ago when it launched at I/O.  In the interim we've found that the GCE team has continued to execute on some features that really distinguish it from competitors– especially disk I/O, boot times and machine consistency, and global network performance.  We're excited to talk about how these attributes further bolster a high-performance service like Zencoder and deliver tangible benefits to end users. If you're going to be at the conference, hit us up on Twitter @zencoderinc, or just stop by the Sandbox to say hello!
